Bring It On by We Are They

Alan Cross

I like this one, too. Great anthemic chorus, too! Elements of both 90s alt-rock and some early 80s New Wave. Works for me on all levels. 

Is there money in the budget for a lyric video for YouTube? That's still the biggest platform.

What's the connection to Dancing on Tables? And send me an MP3 of this one, too. I'll get it a play on Canadain radio.

Bob Lugowe

Well-written song with an infectious chorus and urgent message in the lyrics. Sounds like a blend of 60's activism and 90s alt rock but with a modern flare. Nice work.  

In terms of promotion, I would start by suggesting that you include links to hear more music / your social media in your Fluence submission so people can find out more about you. This is your elevator pitch in front of the right people so you want to make it as easy as possible for listeners to get the full picture and find more of your music if they're interested.

If you're not already, be sure to use all of the available and FREE artist tools across the DSPs like Spotify for Artists, Apple Music for Artists, Amazon Music for Artists and Bandcamp's artist platform as these will provide great insight into your fanbase, how your music is performing and allow you to optimize your profiles and pitch for inclusion on playlists in certain instances.

If you're looking for more promotion and building a fanbase you should consider hiring a publicist or a marketing firm that you feel you can trust and is a fan of your music to help with the release of your next single and/or album to help you get visibility on blogs, playlisting, etc. If you're not already on a label, consider trying to get signed to one as they can help you with the promo and playlist pitching. Lastly, I would suggest making music videos or visual content for any of your focus singles, ideally the more shareable the better. This song having such a powerful message would be ideal to have a video to go with it. 

Best of luck!

Tell Me It Ain't Over by Dancing on Tables

Mike Mineo

Punchy guitars exude a catchy power-pop feeling from the get-go. A bass-y reverberation alongside suave vocals makes for climatic initial verses, seamlessly gliding into bouncy guitars that excel toward the "tell me that you," chorus, which shimmers with delightful infectiousness. Aesthetically,  I'm reminded of a cross between Rooney and The 1975. As such, the aesthetic is accessible and radio-friendly, while still showing enjoyable creativity. "Tell Me It Ain't Over" exudes contagious charm and aesthetically bright energy throughout, capped nicely by the melodic guitar solo around 01:50. Nice work! I look forward to sharing. Also, since you noted wanting help with promotion, feel free to email me at mike@obscuresound.com for details on my PR servicing. This track has ample PR potential. Thanks! -Mike

Great song! I wish we could play it on our show but we only play music by female artists. But definitely get this out there and try to get it on playlists and podcasts. It's a really fun, catchy song and I think it could gain a lot of traction.

Brody Ramone

A tasty little electro pop rock track perfect for that summer romance that is about to end.  A fun upbeat song with a sad and somber message of a love that has since expired. Keep up the great work!

Lauren Gribble

Hey guys! Great work. No improvements are needed, just keep doing what you are doing!

Hugh McIntyre

Loved this! So much fun, so catchy! Only thing I'd suggest is possibly finding a way to make it sound even more premium and less amateur--maybe a better studio, more high-profile mixer or engineer?

Alan Cross

I like the sound. Modern alt-pop. No notes from me on songwriting, performance, or production. Well done!

This is definitely radio-ready, but you'll need to present a story beyond what you listed below. How many gigs have you played? What's your social media following? Do you have a video for this? (Even a lyric video is better than nothing. YouTube is still the best place for music discovery.)

The great stuff will rise to the top, but it needs help getting past all the noise and all the competition. The only way that's going to happen is if people honestly believe they can deliver the goods. 

Another thing: Make sure you connect with as many blogs as you can. Every one of those bloggers wants to believe they have what it takes to find the Next Big Thing.

And have you submitted something to BBC 6 Music? This is just the kind of thing they might want to plug.

Tell you what: Send a high-quality MP3 to alan@alancross.ca along with a bit of a bio and I'll see if I can get it some feature play in Canada.

Fun, catchy pop/rock song that I'm sure translates well in a live environment.
